Shopping with young ones

I know it isn't always easy or fun to shop with the wee ones, but sometimes it is a necessary evil.

How do you keep your kids entertained? How do you deal with public tantrums?

I know I chose to raise these kids, but sometimes it would be nice if the woman who was alone and had a shopping list 10 miles long would let me, the woman with 2 energetic, slightly naughty, possibly screaming kids, and only a handful of items go ahead of her.
